Lasko Expands Domestic Production With U.S.-Made Heaters

Lasko Products is expanding its domestic production by launching U.S.-made Cyclonic Digital Ceramic Heaters.

The Cyclonic digital ceramic heaters are specifically designed to heat larger rooms more efficiently. The heaters improve the user experience by pulling cooler air in through the bottom of the unit and distributing heat further into the room from the top. The slim and strategic design not only heats the room more quickly but as the air is pulled in through the front of the unit it saves space as it is able to be placed against the wall in any room, the company noted.

“We are excited to introduce a heater that is truly unique in functionality and design,” said John Harrington, vp/product development, Lasko. “This new line of heaters is a commitment to the expansion of our product offerings featuring innovative and consumer-friendly technology.”

The heaters are available in two models: Model CC24920 features touch sensing technology controls, a first for the industry and Lasko, the company said. Additional features include adjustable thermostat, 8-hour auto-off timer, two quiet heat settings and an easy-to-clean filter.

Model CC24910 features a multi-function remote control with additional features including an adjustable thermostat, 8-hour auto-off timer and two quiet heat settings.

Both units feature 1,500 watts of warmth, are fully assembled upon purchase, have an easy-carry handle, and come with a three-year limited warranty. The CC24920 is available exclusively at Walmart for $77.93 and the CC24910 is available at Home Depot for $99.97.

The launch of the new U.S.-made heaters comes at a time of ongoing change in consumer sentiment favoring products that are made in the U.S.

“This is an important and strategic product launch for us at Lasko,” said Ed Vlacich, CEO, Lasko. “U.S. production substantially decreases the lead time from factory floor to retailer to consumer cart, an invaluable asset in a weather-driven business. We are all extremely proud of this line of domestic heaters and the jobs it will bring to our economy.”
